Gefion Fountain

Eve Ha
Day 4 - I was absolutely stunned by the stunning Gefion Fountain. It is a large fountain on the harbour front in Copenhagen, featuring a large-scale group of animal figures being driven by the legendary Norse goddess, Gefjun. It is just minutes walk away from The Little Mermaid statue. The fountain was donated by Calsberg Foundation on its 50-year anniversary to Copenhagen. The fountain was designed by Anders Bundgaard and was first activated on July 14, 1908. Right next to The Gefion Fountain is St. Alban's Church, also known as the English Church by the locals. The Anglican church was designed by Arthur Blomfield as a traditional English parish church in the Gothic Revival style. Inside the church, it was so stunning and beautiful! I took my sweet time walking along the harbour to Nyhavn. The waterfront view is just gorgeous!
